Headteacher's Welcome




Welcome to Newlands!

It is a privilege to lead this happy and successful school. I am immensely proud   of all that is achieved here and believe that we offer an education that embraces both time-honoured traditions and new thinking.

We have a well-deserved reputation for high academic standards. Our 2017 public examination results were outstanding: 90% of girls in Year 11 achieved the new benchmark of a GCSE ‘4’ in both English and Mathematics. The Department of Education recognises Newlands as a school where progress is ‘well above average’, an achievement secured through the hard work of both pupils and teachers. In the Sixth Form, our Year 13s achieved great success with 82.4%   A*- C at A-Level. Nearly all girls secured their first-choice university places and   we are confident that this year, an even larger number will be gaining admission to prestigious institutions such as Oxford and Cambridge.

As a single-sex school and as experts in the education of girls, we can offer your daughter everything she needs to succeed. The world is changing fast and we  are confident that a Newlands’ education will help develop the key dispositions    of self-confidence, independence and tenacity. All our teachers are fully qualified and teach with a passion and an energy that stretches, engages and fascinates the pupils. With superb pastoral care and a fabulous range of extra-curricular activities, every girl can flourish and fulfil her potential.

This website can give you a flavour of life at Newlands, but in order to decide if the school is right for your daughter, there can be no substitute for a visit. We would be delighted to arrange a bespoke tour for you and an informal discussion over a cup of tea. Please telephone us on: 01628 625068 and ask to speak to my P.A., Mrs Liz Bateson.

I hope you enjoy exploring the website and I look forward to meeting with you soon.
